The Dylusions line by Ranger is so versatile. You really can go in so many directions when creating. For this tag I knew I wanted more than just stitching as added texture.
Step 1: Cut one sheet of Sticky Back Canvas in half. Using a pallet knife, add Texture Paste through the Dylusions Sugar Lumps Stencil.
Step 2: I used a Heat it Tool to speed the drying process up. Be careful not to overheat the Texture Paste.
Step 3: Spritz the Craft Sheet with Dylusions Spray Ink in Postbox Red, Pure Sunshine and Lemon Zest. I also added the Dylusions Shimmer Spray in Pure Sunshine. Use a Mini Mister to lightly spray the ink with water.
Step 4: Place the texture pasted sticky-back canvas over into the ink and spread it around. I tried to make sure I was covering the canvas completely. Pick up the canvas sheet and moved it around to make sure the colors were blending.
Step 5: Use the Blending Tool to fill in any spaces not covered by ink.
Step 6: I partially peeled the backing off and firmly stuck a tag to the canvas.
Step 7: Return the backing and trace around the tag with a pencil to make cutting the tag out easier. Then cut out the tag.
Step 8: I chose one of the Dylusions postcards and fussy cut the image I planned to use.
Step 9: I then cut a few word phrases from an old book I use in my collage art. I glued both the image and the words down with a Dylusions Collage glue stick.
Step 10: Using my sewing machine, I added stitching around the image as well as the border of the tag. I never worry about straight lines. Wonky stitching adds character to your pieces and perfection is simply overrated. Let the machine do the work and enjoy the process.
Step 11: I had a few pieces of scrap material and ribbon and I used that as my tie up top. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and I look forward to seeing what you make with your Dylusions and Ranger products!
